I loved it and it was simple.
My husbands favorite dessert is cheesecake, a simple vanilla cheesecake but only make it for special occasions because of the high fat/calorie count. I've tried many lower calorie recipes and this is by far the best. Easy to make, dense and very delicious. I used a graham crust. Also, I used the steam bath method along with opening the oven at the end and there was not once crack on the cake. Presentation was beautiful.
This is good, in fact really good, but have to disagree that it is easy to make. I use a Pillsbury pie crust to save time and this is not my forte. I rarely give 5 stars so this is a great review for me. One thing that I don't understand is that I have the original recipe in my file from 2002, yet on the CL website it is dated 2003.
It was OK. Easy to make. Most likely will not make it again; just because there are better desserts out there.
